Open HTTP Handle (G Dataflow)

Version:
    Last Modified: January 12, 2018

    Opens a client handle. Use client handles to wire together multiple HTTP nodes while preserving authentication credentials, HTTP headers, and cookies.

    cookie file

    Path that allows you to store a client-side cookie. Cookies store data across multiple web requests.

    Cookie File Storage

    HTTP nodes on the Web Server target store and maintain cookies that a server creates based on the browser environment and server configurations. The HTTP nodes cannot observe the cookies a server creates or add additional cookies to send to the server. You must set cookie file to an empty path or not a path.

    On non-Web Server targets, you must manually specify how to manage the cookies the server creates. If you do not add a cookie file path or extract the cookies from the headers output, you cannot include the cookies in subsequent requests to the server.

    username

    Log-in username for the SMTP server you specify. On most public servers, this is your email address.

    datatype_icon

    password

    Log-in password for the SMTP server you specify.

    error in

    Error conditions that occur before this node runs.

    The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

    Standard Error Behavior

    Many nodes provide an error in input and an error out output so that the node can respond to and communicate errors that occur while code is running. The value of error in specifies whether an error occurred before the node runs. Most nodes respond to values of error in in a standard, predictable way.

    error in does not contain an error error in contains an error
    If no error occurred before the node runs, the node begins execution normally.

    If no error occurs while the node runs, it returns no error. If an error does occur while the node runs, it returns that error information as error out.

    If an error occurred before the node runs, the node does not execute. Instead, it returns the error in value as error out.

    Default: No error

    datatype_icon

    verify server

    Boolean value that determines whether to verify the server's identity and establish a secure connection. Use this input to allow HTTP nodes to communicate using the HTTPS protocol.

    True Verifies the servers identity and establishes a secure connection.
    False Does not verify the servers identity or establish a secure connection.

    Server Verification on a Web Server Target

    HTTP nodes on a Web Server target do not allow you to configure verification of HTTPS servers. You must set this input to True. To work around server verification, you must configure your browser or operating system to connect to servers that you cannot verify.

    Default: True

    datatype_icon

    client handle out

    Unique value that identifies the web request. Use this value to refer to this web request in subsequent node calls.

    You can use the same client handle to wire together multiple HTTP nodes to preserve authentication credentials, HTTP headers, and cookies.

    Client handles are not required when making independent web requests without persistent data such as headers or credentials.

    datatype_icon

    error out

    Error information.

    The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

    If no error occurs while the node runs, it returns no error. If an error does occur while the node runs, it returns that error information as error out.

    If an error occurred before the node runs, the node does not execute. Instead, it returns the error in value as error out.

    Where This Node Can Run:

    Desktop OS: Windows

    FPGA: Not supported

    Web Server: Supported in VIs that run in a web application
